International College, Los Angeles

International College, Los Angeles

International College was founded in Los Angeles in 1970. Its motto was "In Vestigiis Institutorum Antiquorum". The College operated under authorization granted by the California State Department of Education.

During the 1980's its president was Linden G. Leavitt.

As its motto indicated, the college followed the methods of the first universities, where students were paired with outstanding tutors. Students could earn credit studying at different universities before completing their dissertation. Many of the works of its students were published by the College under the imprint Guild of Tutors Press

In the area of economics, the late Dr. Hans F. Sennholz was one of the tutors who participated over many years, graduatiing students of renown in the field of economic education and public policy. One example is Alejandro Antonio "Alex" Chaufen, president and CEO of Atlas Economic Research Foundation since 1991 and president and founder of the Hispanic American Center of Economic Research. Another is Juan Carlos Cachanosky, a renowned professor in Argentina and Guatemala.

Also in the field of economics, Robert L. Bradley Jr., founder of the Institute for Energy Research received his degree from leading libertarian theorist Murray N. Rothbard (see below).

The college has renowned tutors in other areas as well, such as Leonard Bernstein in music. Almost 40 colleges and universities, including Harvard, accepted and recognized International College degrees.

Operating in the pre-internet period, the college business model was ahead of its time, and ceased operations.
